    measure the 12 v voltage. sometimes you have to take it out of the circuit for a jump start

    Where did you jump from? At the jump point under the hood, or directly at the battery?

    Agree. The first and most fundamental check is 12v voltage using a meter. If there are no lights or indications of power anywhere I would suspect a fuse has blown. Voltage checks in the engine fuse box is the place to check, again using a meter.


    Measuring at the 30 amp Engine WP fuse would be helpful.
